Douglas Royal relegated as St Marys close in on title

2-2 draw with St John's not enough for Royals

Douglas Royal have been relegated despite twice coming back to share the spoils with St John's in a 2-2 stalemate at Ballafletcher. 

Adam Cooil’s leveller in the closing stages salvaged a point for Royal, but their inferior goal difference sees them slip out of Manx football’s top tier.  

St Marys meanwhile are just a point away from their first Canada Life Premier League title after thrashing Laxey 6-0 away at Glen Road.  

In last night’s other top flight game, St Georges and Old Boys played out a goalless draw.
